OUR GROWING SELECTION
This can be as simple as adjusting to fit your X-seam (essentially, leg length), or getting deep into adaptive outfitting of the bike for your specific ability. Look for more info soon about our Adaptive Consulting service.
Seattle Trike is now a dealer for the award winning recumbent and trike company HP Velotechnik. Their widely renouned German engineering has made their line of trikes one of the most popular among enthusiasts. Their products are precisely manufactured and are even shipped with a torque specification sheet for every bolt on the trike.
Trident is located in Lincolnton, North Carolina. The word most often mentioned in connection with this manufacturer is “value”. Trident builds well-performing trikes at more-accessible price points, and then throws in the more common accessories to sweeten the deal. For many riders, a Trident is their first trike. Then again, for many it’s the one that they stay with. Trident trikes tend to be fairly lightweight, innovative, and a responsive ride. The most popular models are the Stowaway 1 and 2. For larger riders, the Titan has a higher than typical weight limit. The E-Stowaway is priced well below most electrically assisted trikes. Spike is a no-frills, low-complexity model.
Located in Uhersky Brod, in the southeast (Moravian) corner of the Czech Republic, Azub has grown rapidly by building some of the most highly-engineered, well-crafted recumbents in the world. They build both two and three-wheelers in a newly-expanded facility. Frames are aluminum and rugged. The suspended models (TriCon and TiFly) hint at the designers’ auto racing backgrounds. The TiFly is unique in the trike world in using a titanium, double wishbone-type front suspension for a ride that is unrivalled in its sophistication.
We visited the factory in May 2018, then took a TriCon for a tour of the Tauern and Danube bike paths in Austria. We finished the ride away convinced that Azub makes unsurpassed quality trikes.
